Useless Map

Image source - Google Image Search

Lost in the jungle
With a map in hand
Sweating with fear
As darkness arrives

Look at the guide
Worthless it seems
Shout to nobody's ears
A standstill life

Lacking the right compass
While in the forest
Shred the useless map
Aimlessly I continued my walk

Ultimately its ones own instinct coupled with courage that can lead one out of that darkness.

It set me thinking and concluded that it is a terrifying proposition!! A simple and beautiful narration :)
